We had a wonderful hiking experience here. We chose the easier path as we are not as experienced but it was amazing! Such beautiful views and excellent photo ops. A very beautiful area to visit!

This is a great park for locals to hike. If you are coming from other places, and want to use your precious time in LA, I would recommend going other places instead.

Los Angeles stretches out before your eyes, and you finally understand why they call it the city of angels for it's majestic appearance of grandeur and flashing lights.

The hiking here is good, but crowded. They have recently started charging for parking. Be careful of the rattle snakes on the hiking trail, mostly young and small ones basking in in the sun.

Nice to come here before sunset to take beautiful view of LA. But be ready to pay 8 dollars for 1 hour parking. 1 hour is not enough though to enjoy the Park and Observatory.

Parking was very hellish but once out it was pretty, hard to see during peak smog times I would guess but midday it is not too bad.

My friends and I do some hikes here from time to time. Be careful at night considering we had to fight off some Coyotes which was way too similar to Liam Neeson in the Grey for our liking. However, the view is always worth it...More
